First instalment within a suite I've been working on recently, exploring ancient creation myths. Sort of painterly, comparative mythology, imagination research.
'Enuma Elis' is ancient Babylonian creation myth named after its opening words: "When the sky above was not named, And the earth beneath did not yet bear a name, ...".
How is something created out of nothing? what is there to work with when all you have is the infinite space? Now these are quite challenging questions that are sometimes more succesfully pondered through art than through intelect.
I'm very interested in this...
The painting is 40x40cm, oil on streched canvas. Sides are painted black so there is no need for framing unless one wishes to. surface varnished for glossy finish and UV protection.
